In the first major showing of the artist’s work in a public institution in Scotland, the sixth and final exhibition in the NOW series will highlight the work of Scottish artist Katie Paterson.


NOW will trace the artist's exploration of deep time, the cosmos, and the place of humans in relation to these phenomena – themes that have been central to the artist’s work for more than a decade. Among the works  featured will be Paterson’s mesmerising installation Totality (2016), a large - scale mirror ball created from almost all known images of solar eclipses captured by humankind, and Light Bulb to Simulate Moonlight (2008), held in National Galleries of Scotland’s collection. Works by other artists will be selected, drawing on themes relating to Paterson’s practice, and will be displayed in surrounding galleries.
